Do you enjoy running? swimming? cycling? how about in-line skating? playing soccer? or basketball? hiking anyone? Have you ever taken part in an organized event of your favorite activity that supports a great cause? How did it go and how did you feel taking part in it? If not, I urge you to try it, it’s pretty exhilarating…
I’d like to thank Andreu Llabrés for the invitation to take part in a swimming event organized by the Balearic Association for Multiple Esclerosis (ABDEM) on the pool of Hotel Horizonte in Palma de Mallorca on July 11th.
It was an excellent opportunity to both become aware of a disease that affects over 2,000,000 people, and to support (even in the smallest of ways) a great cause. A superb event by the people behind ABDEM, the hotel’s staff, and everyone who came to get wet! And thanks to everyone who participated in similar events across the pools and beaches of the island.
I can guarantee you that this summer alone, there are tons of events and activities in your town organized in support of a great cause. And thanks to the great work of all the volunteers, organizers and sponsors, that number is only increasing every year. You don’t need to know anyone personally to take part or feel like getting involved (I didn’t before this event). So please get out there and take part in one of hundreds of events happening this summer!
Can you think of a better way to enjoy your favorite activity than by supporting a great cause in the process?
